Surface Dewatering

Western Canada
Area of Service:
Water Management

In the Mining environment, surface dewatering is an essential service Ketek provides to manage a number of different scenarios.

  • Seepage Control
  • Rainfall events
  • Spring Melt
  • Construction support
  • Sump/pond Management
  • Flood Mitigation

The spring thaw often happens quickly creating an influx of water from dyke structures, fills ponds, ditches and floods roads without proper mitigation.  Ketek works with it’s client to be proactive and creates dewatering plans to manage these events in a timely and cost effective manner where water can be moved into non-risk areas.

Similar to the spring melt, rain events can pose significant risk to operations as roads, ditches, sumps fill up quickly making it difficult or impossible for Light Duties Vehicles to travel to critical areas.  Ketek’s proactiveness and ability to ramp up/ramp down with local branch support to meet these high demand events, combined with strategic placement of equipment has proven successful time and time again.


Construction support, sump/pond management utilize the same techniques as above, and the flexibility of having access to over 9,000 items in Ketek inventory to react quickly with a quality product and result. Our maintenance programs ensure equipment delivered to site is in top working order and able to withstand the harshest conditions.
